I - I don't kn- that photo seems so ubiquitous in the GB community, there must be a video? or a bombcast excerpt?

Was it back in the Gamespot days?

I don't know man, I've tried as hard as I can on google, and you can't beat 100 percent.

Jeff said it in relation to something if I recall correctly.

I've known the image for years, but never where it originated.

It's a line he said back on gamespot, though I don't know anything more detailed past that.

It was from his days at Gamespot. I wasn't around for the inception, but it's a direct quote - aimed toward a game, I believe - that was turned into this image:

I know it's from his Gamespot years but I don't know the actual context.

The first time I heard it was on a 2007 ep of the HotSpot. Can't remember the actual context, but Vinny was asking Jeff if something was more than 100%. Jeff then replied "You can't beat 100%, Vinny".

Sorry for necroing this topic, but I was listening to This Year Hotspot 2007 and stumbled upon the phrase in question. It was about Play The Industry, a hip-hop RPG.

I've uploaded it to YT, here it is.

I thought it had something to do with you being able to get over 200% in castlevania: symphony of the night?

I might be wrong, though
